If the government claimed ownership over the trademark rights to the flag, they could require permission, and perhaps the payment of a fee, for anyone […]

Blumenauer Seeks To End Big Government Transportation Entitlements

Republicans explain their support for big cuts to food stamps programs by saying that they want to reduce entitlement spending. Food, in their opinion, is a luxury that Americans shouldn’t be given unless they really need it. They worry that some Americans might be accepting food stamp assistance even when they retain a few thousand […]

Our Destiny As Children Of God Revealed In The U.S. Senate Yesterday

Yesterday, Barry C. Black, the man appointed and paid by the U.S. federal government to be the high priest of the United States Senate, stood on the floor of the Senate and called upon his god to seize control of the legislative body. “Today, equip our Senators to do Your will, helping them to grasp […]

Government Shutdown: What Would A Green Party President Do?

What I would do, if I was in Barack Obama’s place, would be to say, “Okay, Republicans, if you don’t like Obamacare and its requirement to purchase insurance, that’s fine.” […]

Alan Grayson Wants The USA To Keep Up Appearances

Perhaps Alan Grayson isn’t really serious about H.R. 3203. Perhaps he is merely using this legislation as an opportunity to chide the Republicans that their tactics risk the closure of patriotic landmarks. […]
